10. Is there any way to mitigate the consequences of dam related emergency?

It is possible to mitigate the consequences of earthquakes and floods by taking into account, during the design of the dam, the expected intensity of seismic vibrations (Operating Basis Earthquake, OBE) and the strong flooding probability (Inflow Design Flood, IDF). 

Possible flood wave impact should also be taken into account when planning human settlements. Installation of monitoring and alarm systems significantly reduces the risk of human losses. 

Of course, an appropriate insurance policy is very important for the mitigation of dam related disasters.
